Proposed Schedule, November 13 Vancouver Meet

Proposed Schedule, November 13 Vancouver Meet

Postby binkie » Wed Nov 10, 2004 2:16 am

OK, no-one has spoken up, so I'm spreading out some ideas for this Saturday:

1. Approx 12:00: Meet up at Iona Island, near Vancouver International Airport. This area should have some great photo ops (aircraft in backgraound, beach, etc. Getting to the airport should be easy for our US members, and Iona is right next to it (kind of).

2. After meeting up, go Karting, depending on interest. It's in Richmond, and should only be a 20 min drive from YVR.

3. Next, if daylight allows, we'll head over to the Ioco area (Coquitlam), for the Burrard Thermal Plant drive (this is where they do the hillclimb every fall)! It's near Belcarra, where there is decent park area, and Its a much nicer drive than anything in Richmond! I passed this by one other member already, and he felt the drive would be of interest, although it would be ~45 min each way from Richmond. But this is a celebration of the greatest automobile ever made, so we don't care about that, do we? I said greatest, not most reliable, J/K.

4. Go get some dinner somewhere, either in Coquitlam area, or we could head towards Burnaby or Vancouver to get departing visitors a little closer to home.

Weather or daylight permitting, we could swap 2 & 3 around, and have dinner back in Richmond again!

Everone, please speak up if you don't like this plan, we don't want our schedule preventing any attendance!

I would also like to hear if you DO like it!

I just found out I won't be able to make it to Richmond until 12:30-1:00, due to something I need to do in the morning downtown. However, it shouldn't hold up everyone else from meeting up.

I also did a little thinking about the number of daylight hours we will have, so maybe the order of things sould be:

Iona Island/YVR

Ioco Run

then dinner or Karting, whichever is more needed.

Lets hear some feedback on this, then!

Marc, I think that sounds great :D
A meeting time of 12:30 - 1:00 PM should be adequate for everyone to get there.
Because of Daylight Savings Time, the sun will start to drop at about 4:30 PM now. So it's good that you took that into account for taking pictures.

The only suggestion I have is an optional food / lunch break after the initial meet and greet. The US guys may be hungry after the drive up :wink: Otherwise, everything is shaping up fine.

1. Iona Island / Vancouver Internat'l. Airport: Meet and greet, take pics.

2. Optional lunch break?

3. Ioco Run

4. Dinner or Karting, whichever is more needed.

Adding lunch to the agenda sounds good, I'll need it by then, too. Rick, do you know a decent fast food location in Richmond, Vancouver or Burnaby that we can pencil in to help plan the route? We should try for somewhere with more than 1 option, and definately on the way towards Ioco. How about somewhere along Marine?

AWDios, you'll have problems catching up to us if you don't meet at one of the designated locations. I would recommend trying to meet with everyone at 12:30, otherwise later that night at dinner/karting. I'll get you my cel number later.

I think we should leave times for dinner and karting open, because we might not make good on them. We will be doing drop in karting, anyways.

Iona Island and Belcarra are not completely on Mapquest (pictured, but not selectable), so I will have to make my own maps. I will do this tonight or tomorrow.

I don't know that my cell works in BC, so like I said, if you can get me best times and address's of when and where you'll be then I'll see what I can do.

Marc,
There are a lot of fast food places along Marine Drive:
Wendy's, McDonald's, Denny's, Subway.
I'd like to go with Wendy's myself, quick and cheap and you can't beat the junior bacon cheeseburger :D

So far, what you see above is the plan.

12:30/1:00 Meet at Iona Beach Regional Park

Approx 2:00 Lunch along Marine Drive

Approx 3:00 Drive to Ioco (Belcarra Park, Burrard Thermal Plant Drive)

4:30 Return to Richmond

5:30 Karting at TBC or Dinner in Richmond area.

The instructions above will get you to Iona Beach Regional Park. The map does actually work, just no detail.

If anyone wants to punch up their own Mapquest route, just put "4000 Ferguson Rd, Richmond" as the destination. You'll just have to drive a little further down the road.

Rick, do you think these instructions are sufficient (you know the area)? Is there anyone

If anyone wants my cel number, just private mail me.
